    As a big lover of industrial goodness, I didn't really believe that I would actually go down a culvert when I met up with Ojay and Nickindroy. Took a bit of convincing but I thought perhaps maybe I should give this a try as Ojay and Nick were convinced I would be converted to the 'good stuff' that exists underground! It was certainly an experience and not necessarily one I would repeat but hey, I gave it a try and that's all that matters!

    I didn't come away with many good shots but since this is my first experience underground I thought I might as well stick up a report :)

    HISTORY FROM PAUL POWERS

    In the mid 1800s the Medlock formed a border between the city of Manchester and suburbs like Ardwick and Chorlton on Medlock.

    The Medlock Culvert was built to re-direct the Medlock River in Manchester, after a series of floods, the worst being in 1872 where the flooding was so bad it literally tore bodies out of graves in the nearby cemetery, sending around 76 corpses floating away.

    The culvert is constructed of various stone and brickwork, and incorporates street drainage and a water drain off for the nearby Rochdale Canal. The culvert starts in Phillips Park.
